The #1 Reason Why People Don’t Blog

I receive many reach-outs specifically about how people can start blogging more often. After two years I’ve figured out the #1 reason why people don’t blog.

The number one reason is that they are afraid their writing isn’t any good. A few other reasons I’ve heard are: I don’t have enough time, I don’t know what to write about, etc. But time and time again, people are worried others will be critical of their writing because it isn’t any good.

To this I typically say, so what? No one is expecting Pulitzer Prize-level writing from a blog. Just write!

If you are considering picking up blogging, just start writing. You may have one or two duds along the way, but write about things that interest you and I guarantee you’ll find a readership.
